Colorful chemistry

Colorful chemistry 

In the thesis, we make our own natural indicator of red cabbage and determine the ranges of color of the red cabbage indicator. An indicator is a compound or ion whose color changes within a certain pH range or changes the color of the test solution at its equivalence point. 

There are several different indicators for different uses. Many indicators can be produced directly from natural materials. In addition to red cabbage such natural indicators include tea, blueberry, rhubarb and beet. The color of the prepared indicator is examined with acidic and basic substances. 

The color changes of various plants and substances are compared to the table below and examined whether the solution is acidic, neutral or alkaline.




Sun – Slunce – Sol – Slnko – Sole – Aurinko

We were inspired by finnish school (our teachers showed us the photos of finnish student´s work ) and prepared the list of  names for Sun in diffrent languages. The Sun is a star found at the center of the Solar system. Around 74% of the Sun’s mass is made up of hydrogen. Helium makes up around 24% while heavier elements such as oxygen, carbon, iron and neon make up the remaining percentage. Light from the Sun reaches Earth in around 8 minutes. At around 1,392,000 kilometres (865,000 miles) wide, the Sun’s diameter is about 110 times wider than Earth’s.

The last Italian Erasmus plus experience at Trapani and Mozia: still on the Science and Art link

The last experience of the Erasmus plus project conducted by our school took place in the city of Trapani and the island of Mozia. Students of the last grade (5 ^ B) , that has actively participated in the project since its beginning, were involved in the last Erasmus plus experience  visiting Trapani, the dark tower and the astronomical clock and the Church of Purgatory. They visited also the Phoenician island of Mozia with its vestiges of the Carthaginian era and the Withaker Archaeological Museum. Our students were enthusiastic and to illustrate and share the experience they produced a meticulous and complex multimedia product creating an electronic postcard with Thinglink. They have grown over the years even with the ICT of the Erasmus plus project and they became excellent! This electronic postcard includes twenty photos, descriptions and a video! A pleasure to watch it!

Last transnational meeting in Salo

The last transnational meeting took place in the small town of Salo, located on the connecting line between Finland’s capital Helsinki and Turku.During the meeting we visited the participating school Moision koulu, which captivated us with its equipment and absolute peace even during breaks. In addition to balancing and preparing the final report of  the project, we have time to visit the picturesque Finnish countryside and the city of Turku. On our way back we also stopped in Helsinki, where we were most interested in Helsinki Central Library Oodi. Continue reading

Iammin vastaanotto taiteen ja luonnon valilla: a warm welcome between Art and Nature

A warm welcome between Art and Nature

This time the main theme of the last TPM meeting was ” Recycling and Environment”. On 16/9/2019 the Italian teachers G. Monteleone and A. Perconte landed to Finland.
Everybody arrived according to the scheduled time and Salo offered us a warm welcome with a cooking class. According to what previously agreed, each delegation of the participating countries introduced their traditions by offering a typical regional dish.
Moreover each delegation presented their own city and educational institution to the Moision kuolu also using the multimedia material created during the various phases of the project. Teachers visited the school and appreciated the classes of carpentry, iron working, art and music, and finally the craft class (which includes activities related to the domestic economy). The activity continued at Teijo where the teachers met the artist Tuula Nikulainen with whom they held a workshop experimenting an artistic handicraft made with the use of natural materials.

Summer photographic reportage about Science and Art

Just like during summer 2018, before the mobility in Zaragoza, even this year, summer was for our SMART students an opportunity to reflect on the interaction between Science and Art.

They therefore focused on artistic beauties and opportunities for scientific knowledge around them in their holiday destinations. The photographic reportage produced this time goes beyond Sicily, however it revolves around Italy. For young art lovers it was a real race in search of details, for those more attracted by science, the uncontaminated nature of some areas of Sicily offered some valuable hints. The photo gallery of our students takes us to the soon coming Finnish mobility.
